We were a group of 5 New Yorkers, and the Hummingbird Apt functioned as a guesthouse, not a center. Its a private home of Christy, a longtime resident of the lovely island, who will cater to you like a long lost aunt. She'll be a fixture of your stay and a center point to organize your needs and will goes out of her way to assist in all aspects of your trip unless you request otherwise. This quirky home comes complete with several rooms with private bathrooms and mosquito-netted beds (crucial), a large porch, another front porch, a dozen wind chimes, an eclectic kitchen, candles, upright piano, wild garden and friendly young dog to "protect" the home. A stay here will require a car unless you want to rely on your hostess every day to get around. Christy is an energetic and conscious owner, very keen on saving energy and water and respecting animals! This is a vegan home, and there is absolutely no meat allowed to be prepared though fish and eggs she will tolerate for you to cook. Christy is happy to sell you additional services such as meals and massages and such; she's also eager to book your activities with locals (she gets a commission for booking - which is standard in any guesthouse business - though it should not cost you any more than local rates). We were budgeted and very independent group therefore we did not try her cooking or services. Highlights for us at Hummingbird include rum-soaked Giant Jenga and Giant pickup sticks, a dinner party with the fish we caught, and a bonfire Christy prepared the last night. As for Barbados, highlights included Friday Night Fish-fry, a drive around the island, an early morning fishing trip, catamaran day trip, sandwiches by the beach at Cousin Gus, and sunshine and rainbows.
